    Actually, King's makes the Windsor dressage saddles. You might want to advertise that fact. Several of their dressage saddles are identical to the Windsor line - with the exception of price tag...

    This makes me think of wearing dark gloves in dressage so any unsteadiness in your hands doesn't show. It only works if you have a dark horse. You won't notice a white lash against a sparkling...

    I know I'm not the only person on the board with swissies (greater swiss mountain dogs). We're currently down to three, one of whom is a blue, (not showable) that we got from GSMDCA rescue two years...

    I would NEVER do it. That said, I do know a small time racing TB trainer who has done it for years. It scares the beejeebies out of me (and I know several of the chemists who formulated Raid). He...

    May I recommend a site specific to giant breed dogs, their differences and requirements? www.bigdogsporch.com has tons of useful information for someone looking into giant breeds - the good, the bad...

    I am so sorry for your loss. There were parts of your post I could have written verbatim. My heart horse was a Conn/TBX - who excelled over fences of any type, but also did some decent dressage and...

    Schoolhouse Rock was great, but probably should have covered spelling too (kidding here). Grammar is a frequently spelled incorrectly. I noticed the shirts on TOTD and just shook my head.

    SLC - you snark, I NEVER mentioned rollkur. I also said bad dressage "CAN" cause lameness. As can bad footing, conformation not suited to the task at hand, overuse, etc. The gentleman I mentioned...

    Look up the book and video by Gerd Heuschmann - Dressage isn't the culprit per se - bad dressage can be damaging physically to the horse.

    Marion Mould (nee Coakes) was one of my childhood idols. Seeing her win major competitions on her 14h 2" connemara cross was simply inspiring. There weren't as many women in the upper eschelons of...

    I don't think you can generalize that Hulsebos saddles have poor leather and don't wear well. I think a lot has to do with which types of leather you pick when you have the saddle made.

    I don't have time to hunt for videos right now, but I believe the connemara stallion Tre Awain DeValera competed GP with Mari Monda Zdunic. Also, Orrie Decaster's GP horse five or so years ago was a...

    Probably not the same issue, but I once had a mare get a 2" cut just below her stifle. It barely needed stitches, but the vet was at the barn for another horse, so I had her close it. Thus began 4...
